Establishment: Concluding Remarks

Bearing in mind that an oil palm planting would have more than twenty years of productive life before it has to be replanted, the inputs at replanting and during the palm establishment period as mentioned in this article are highly justified. A well planted and well maintained stand of oil palm would reward the planter with sustainable high early and mature yields, provided the other agro-management requirements (such as nutrition, pest control etc. which are not discussed here) of the palms are also well taken care off.
